Pro-Trump Group Releases Findings on Election Fraud in Wisconsin and, Yeah, Trump Won't Like This One Bit

Pro-Trump Group Releases Findings on Election Fraud in Wisconsin and, Yeah, Trump Won't Like This One Bit

For more than a year now, former President Donald Trump and his allies have promoted delusions that the 2020 election was "stolen" by Democrats coordinating with election companies like Dominion Voting Systems to perpetrate widespread election fraud.

This is, of course, nonsense. Trump's claims of fraud were tossed out in more than 50 lawsuits. Election audits in a number of swing states Trump lost found no evidence of widespread fraud. Trump's Attorney General at the time, William Barr, reached the same conclusion.

And now, a right-wing group in Wisconsin has come up with nothing as well.

Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty (WILL) recently released the results of a 10 month investigation of approximately 20 thousand ballots and nearly 30 thousand absentee ballot envelopes.

The conclusion?

"There was no evidence of widespread voter fraud. In all likelihood, more eligible voters cast ballots for Joe Biden than Donald Trump. We found little direct evidence of fraud, and for the most part, an analysis of the results and voting patterns does not give rise to an inference of fraud"

But wait, there's more.

Key targets of Republican election fraud fantasies were electronic voting systems, such as Dominion. The company has filed multiple defamation suits for billions of dollars after Trump and his allies claimed the company switched Trump votes to Biden votes—claims that led to harassment and death threats of its employees and the erosion of its reputation across the country.

Unsurprisingly, WILL's report found:

"Donald Trump won communities that used Dominion voting machines with 57.2%, an increase from 2016. WILL could not access voting machines as a part of this review, but we did model the various machines to evaluate their effect on the outcome of the election. Just 14.7% of Wisconsin jurisdictions employ the Dominion voting machines, maligned by many as a culprit in changing votes for Joe Biden."

Few were surprised at the conclusions.

Soon people began showing the results to officials who promoted Trump's election lies.

But the group's findings aren't likely to sway the most devout pro-Trump election conspiracy theorists.

Nikki Haley's Blunt 'Election' Prediction Comes Back To Haunt Trump After Biden Drops Out

Earlier this year, South Carolina Republican Governor Nikki Haley made a blunt prediction about which political party would win this year's election, a statement that has garnered more attention since President Joe Biden dropped out of the 2024 race and endorsed Vice President Kamala Harris.

At 81, Biden faced increasing concerns within his party about his age and capacity to serve another term, along with fears of a potential loss to former President Donald Trump—who is 78—in November. In his announcement, Biden backed Harris as the Democratic nominee to replace him, calling it "the best decision I’ve made."
